Den’

 

(Day), a bourgeois, left-liberal daily newspaper published in Petrograd from 1912 to 1918. Among its contributors were bourgeois radicals (A. V. Amfiteatrov and N. P. Asheshov), Narodniks (Populists) and Socialist Revolutionaries (V. Bogucharskii, R. V. Ivanov-Razumnik, and S. D. Mstislavskii), and Menshevik-liquidators (D. I. Zaslavskii, St. Ivanovich, N. I. Iordanskii, and P. S. Iushkevich). The newspaper criticized tsarism and the bourgeois-pome shchik (landlord) parties from the liberal Menshevik position. During World War I it occupied a defensist position. After May 30 (June 12), 1917, Den’ became an organ of the Mensheviks. It supported the bourgeois Provisional Government and opposed the Bolsheviks. The newspaper reacted with hostility to the October Socialist Revolution. It was closed on Oct. 26 (Nov. 8), 1917, by the Petrograd Military Revolutionary Committee but for some time continued to publish under different names. It was finally closed in May 1918 for anti-Soviet propaganda.


Den

 

the place where some mammals rest for a long time, hibernate, or raise their cubs. A den, unlike a burrow, is on the surface and usually in a secluded spot: in thick underbrush, among reeds, in a gully, beneath a cliff, or in a cave. Jackals, foxes, wolves, hyenas, tigers, lions, and wild boars build dens. A bear’s den is called berloga in Russian; a den occupied briefly is called lezhka. The latter is built by hares, rodents, and most ungulates.
